LaTeX Package : glossaries v4.40 Last Modified : 2018-06-01 Author : Nicola Talbot Package FAQ : http://www.dickimaw-books.com/faqs/glossariesfaq.html This package is provided to assist generating glossaries. The package supports abbreviations and multiple glossaries. New entries are defined to have a name and description (and optionally an associated symbol). Plural forms can also be specified. New glossary styles can be defined, and preambles and postambles can be specified. There is provision for loading a database of terms, only terms used in the text will be added to the relevant glossary. *This package replaces the glossary package which is now obsolete.* glossaries-accsupp.sty is an experimental package that uses the accsupp package to provide accessibility support for the glossaries package. The glossaries package may be extended with the separately-distributed glossaries-extra package (https://ctan.org/pkg/glossaries-extra), which provides more options and improved abbreviation handling. The mfirstuc package is now a separate bundle (https://ctan.org/pkg/mfirstuc). INSTALLATION See INSTALL file for installation instructions. REQUIREMENTS mfirstuc ifthen xkeyval *at least version 2.5f (2006/11/18)* xfor amsgen etoolbox longtable (unless you use the nolong or nostyles package options) datatool-base textcase tracklang (to determine if any language modules need to be loaded) If the supertabular package is installed, it will also be loaded unless the nosuper or nostyles package options are used. If the supertabular package isn't installed, you can still use the glossaries package, but you won't be able to use any of the styles defined in glossaries-super.sty. If you want to use glossary-longragged.sty or glossary-superragged.sty you will also need the array package. If you want to use glossary-mcols you will also need the multicol package. Note that the current version of the glossaries package doesn't load xspace. If you want to use the experimental glossaries-accsupp.sty you will also need the accsupp package. LaTeX2HTML This package comes with a LaTeX2HTML style file glossaries.perl which should be placed in the relevant LaTeX2HTML styles directory, but note that these styles only supply a sub-set of the commands provided by glossaries.sty, so some commands may not be implemented or may be implemented in a different way. This file has not be tested with recent versions of LaTeX2HTML and may no longer be compatible. LICENCE This material is subject to the LaTeX Project Public License.

glossaries – Create glossaries and lists of acronyms
The glossaries package supports acronyms and multiple glossaries, and has provision for operation in several languages (using the facilities of either babel or polyglossia). New entries are defined to have a name and description (and optionally an associated symbol). Support for multiple languages is offered, and plural forms of terms may be specified. An additional package, glossaries-accsupp, can make use of the accsupp package mechanisms for accessibility support for PDF files containing glossaries.
The user may define new glossary styles, and preambles and postambles can be specified. There is provision for loading a database of terms, but only terms used in the text will be added to the relevant glossary.
This package requires the mfirstuc package.
The package supersedes the author’s glossary package (which is now obsolete).
